Brescia University – Campus Renovation & Addition

Owensboro, Kentucky

General Contractor | Hartz Contracting

Architect | EOA Architects

The $10 Million project, which includes an expansion of the Campus Center and the construction of a new building on the corner of Ninth and Frederica Streets, began in the spring of 2016.

The current Campus Center will undergo a complete redesign that will feature an open concept living and dining area, new admissions offices, and a new Spirit Shop to greet visitors, as well as a new health and wellness center that will give students, staff and faculty access to on-campus exercise facilities.

The gymnasium capacity will be nearly doubled so it will be able to accommodate up to 1,000 fans and have the ability to divide the primary playing court into two full practice courts. The addition of four new team locker rooms and office space for athletic coaches will also be included in the design.

Superior Insealators installed an Icynene Proseal Closed Cell Spray Foam Insulation and Air Barrier system to the exterior walls of the addition. We also utilized a WR Meadows AirShield Liquid Flashing System around all windows and doors as an air and water barrier to maintain continuity of the air barrier system. This ensures there is no air or water leakage into the building.
